EMPOWER! To me this is what G.R.I.T.S. is all about. Women empowering women!
We can ‘compete’ against each other but in the end it is the empowerment/encouragement that we hold on to. By supporting, encouraging, and helping each other, on and off the course, we gain confidence, we want to do better, and we become stronger women.
In my 13 years of shotgun shooting, I have never met a woman who didn’t encourage another women shooting to do her best. I think that is one of the things I like most about this sport. Everyone is friendly, helpful and of course, loves to shoot.
As G.R.I.T.S., whether it is clay or wing shooting, when we empower each other we are giving ourselves a gift.
About Linda Henson: Linda writes a weekly blog called ‘Sometimes I pretend to be Normal’ to get people thinking about different topics. Elizabeth Lanier asked Linda to write something for G.R. I.T.S. and she gladly said yes, since she too is a shooter who believes in the G.R.I.T.S. mission.
